The ENCC is a partner in a 2-year, European-wide project aiming to improve access to arts education for adults with disabilities.
Read more about the CIAE project.
The CIAE (Creative Inclusion in Adult Education) is an Erasmus+ project gathering 6 partners. It focuses on mapping EU policy and frameworks on artistic participation of people with disabilities, identifying good practices, looking at concrete obstacles, and gathering them in an online knowledge centre that is geared towards disabled as well as non-disabled users.
At the project's final event, you'll have the chance to:
- Hear from expert practitioners in the field from a variety of arts disciplines;
- Learn about existing models of practice from across the European Union;
- Learn about existing rights and legal frameworks that underpin inclusive arts education;
- Gain access to free guidelines that can support and inform your work;
- See the launch of a website that will be a support to you going forward.
Who should attend?
Educators, artists, arts venues, practitioners, arts organisations, disability service providers, disability self advocates, families and advocates of persons living with a disability, festivals, policy makers, and those looking to create and/or understand inclusive and diverse models of Arts Education.
How to participate?
The event is free (including a light lunch), but you must register here.
